Determination of Glyphosate and AMPA
Glyphosate, the most commonly used herbicide in current production, is widely used to control pests in corn and soybean fields. Little is known about the fate of glyphosate after it has entered the soil after spraying, so it – and its degradation products AMPA and glufosinate – have become compounds of interest for study. The USGS has introduced a method to determine the presence of certain pesticides in water using isotope dilution, and more information is available about this process here.

Whether you are testing legacy organochlorine pesticides or newer pyrethroid pesticides, CIL is your supplier for isotopically labeled standards. Over the years we have developed standards for OCs, OPs, carbamates, triazines, pyrethroids, and most recently, toxaphene parlar congeners. CIL also offers convenient calibration and spiking mixtures so that lab personnel are not stuck formulating and QCing large sets of standard solutions.
